Hello everyone…and a very happy and blessed Monday to you all! As we spend this precious time together today…my prayer is that God will give us a hope to hold to…one that will truly carry us through each day of this brand new week…Amen!!
Last night…before going to bed; I was already beginning to feel overwhelmed with the week that lied before me. I guess that some of the reason was because of the pain and tiredness that I have been experiencing lately. It’s amazing how these things we experience in life can attempt to convince us that we will never make it through another day…or another week
Anyways…after waking up this morning, I was determined to keep pressing on, even though my body was telling me otherwise. As I went into the bathroom to get around and prepare for another new day; God began to place a song on my heart, which He often does during times of struggle…and a few of the lyrics go like this… “I must tell Jesus all of my trials, I cannot bear these burdens alone; in my distress He kindly will help me, He ever cares and loves His own.”
Once I finished getting around, I came into my office and began to look for the song… “I Must Tell Jesus” on YouTube…and as I listened to each word, I began to break down and realize that all I needed to do was to have a good talk with the Lord and tell Him all about it. Once I took the time to do so; I began to feel the burden of each troubling thought…being lifted from within.
As I continued to spend time with God; He led me to a couple Bible verses in Hebrews 4:15-16, which reads… “For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. 16) Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”
You know…we can experience moments in our lives, when life just seems to be so overwhelming…and once this happens; it seems as though these struggles begin to convey messages of defeat…with no hope in sight. These difficult times we face can be so hard to overcome, especially if others around us just don’t always seem to understand what we are going through at the time; but today, I was reminded of One, who truly knows what it’s like to go through pain and heartache…and because He does understand; we can trust Him…and know that He will listen to our hearts…just like He did for me this morning.
Each day, we need to realize that we cannot bear the burdens of this life alone...for they are too overpowering; so rather than giving into these burdens, while allowing them to crush us to the ground; why not turn to One who is willing and able to listen and understand each need of the heart. I don’t know about you; but I need someone who can look deep within my heart and truly understand…what others just cannot see. What a comfort to know…that when others just don’t understand what we’re experiencing at the time; there is a God who can know exactly where the hurt is…One who can reach deep within the heart…to heal each broken spirit.
As we walk through the uncertainties of this life…I pray that we will always remember that Jesus is always there for us…Amen! Have a very blessed day and I will see ya soon! God bless!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
